“Alaska is nothing to look at.” File that under things you aren’t likely to hear come out of someone’s mouth after visiting Alaska. Hearing friends talk about their experiences traveling to Alaska, coupled with stories of my father’s trips during my childhood, I was concerned that my expectations may have been a little too high when preparing to travel to Alaska with Expedia on Norwegian Jewel.

In fact that didn’t even come close to happening. This Alaskan cruise aboard Norwegian Jewel has allowed me to see Alaska from a perspective that few have the opportunity to.

Here is a little taste in 10 photos.

My life imbibing and traveling around the world started early, flying on a plane for the first time at age five and by myself for the first time at seven. Two decades later and little has changed, though I’ve replaced my notebook, disposable camera, and bottle of coke for a laptop, DSLR, and bottle of whiskey. Having my work featured in publications like National Geographic, AFAR Magazine, Outside Magazine, Los Angeles Times, MSN, and Yahoo, I cover all things travel, food, and drinks here on Whiskey Tango Globetrot.
